Pritzker Signs Right Of Conscience Act Amendment

Illinois’ Health Care Right of Conscience Act is facing changes. Governor J.B. Pritzker signed an amendment to the Act Monday that clarifies COVID-19 precautions and vaccine requirements. The amendment preserves the intent of the law, but says it isn’t a violation of the Act to take workplace public health measures such as efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. The Act goes into effect on June 1, 2022.
